Learn all about the Texas 1835-1836 fight for independence from Mexico in less than an hour! Actors will portray stories of Austin's Oakwood Cemetery heroic "residents" who fought in the battles of the Revolution, survived the Alamo, escaped the Goliad massacre, and helped form the Texas Republic. 45 minute walking tours starting 10am-2pm are presented by Save Austin's Cemeteries non-profit. We'll also have flags, art and music from the Texas Revolution days. Kids under adult supervision are welcome, but leave your pets at home and wear closed-toed shoes.
